Safer Together’s Rig Site Safety Working Group (RSSWG) conducted the 8th Drilling and Completions Industry Incident Review Panel (DCIIRP) on 08 February. This event focused on Land Transport and was organised in collaboration with the Land Transport Working Group (LTWG).

Representatives of companies from the Queensland CSG drilling and completions community gathered together with members of the land transport community to hear presentations from Operators and Contractors about recent incidents and to share lessons learnt. Several presentations were focused on innovations that will improve land transport safety.

The event was kindly hosted by Origin Energy and Easternwell. Kyle Koziol, General Manager, Easternwell remarked “Land Transport incidents wreak a tragic impact on everyone involved. At Easternwell we know that only too well. No-one should ever have to endure the pain of this kind of loss. It is important that our entire Industry learns from these events. We are glad to have the opportunity to support our Industry colleagues, via Safer Together, as we share the lessons we have learnt from incidents. It is also great to share innovations aimed at preventing these incidents in the future”
